This definitive account, will interest all scientists and historians of science, as well as general readers interested in the issues of experimental science and ethical conduct.

Review:

`An authoritative, frank, hard-hitting account of the cold fusion fiasco.' GLENN T. SEABORG`As a distinguished nuclear chemist he is uniquely qualified to evaluate the field. Cool, dispassionate scientists and policymakers will receive his book, I trust, with the respect it deserves.' FRANK CLOSE, NATURELong and quotable review by Steven Jones, Brigham Young Univ., in Physics World, which won't fit in this field. `Members of the scientific community and lay readers interested in the history of the cold fusion episode and its broader implication for the scientific process will find much to consider in John Huizenga's thoughtful account of this astonishing chapter in the history of science.' STANLEY C. LUCKHARDT, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Science, Vol. 257, 24th July 1992. This book belongs in all college and university libraries. CHOICE
